PREP GIRLS BASKETBALL: Redskins stay perfect in 2012-13

Felder’s 28, Swihart’s 23 pace Goshen to fourth consecutive win

GOSHEN —  The Goshen High School girls basketball team is 4-0 — but according to head coach Lenny Krebs, the Redskins still have much work to go to be the team he wants them to be.

Saturday night at home, the Redskins overpowered a young Westview team, pushing out to a 16-4 first-quarter lead and coasting to a 70-31 victory in the nonconference contest.

Krebs was not happy with his team’s intensity in the first half, even though the Redskins outscored the Warriors, 36-11 in the opening 16 minutes.

“We challenged the girls at halftime, and the effort was better in the second half,” Krebs said. “I felt like on defense, we gave up too many high-percentage shots and were not in good defensive position.”

Krebs said despite the big first-half lead, his team often looked unfocused, and for an example of that, he pointed to the stat sheet, which showed Goshen shot just 50 percent on the night from the foul line.

“We can’t do that when we get into the NLC schedule,” Krebs said.

However, the Redskins’ patented full-court pressure was on target for most of the evening, as Goshen harassed Westview into 16 turnovers on the night.

For Westview coach Randy Yoder’s young squad — a team that features just one senior, Olivia Miller — Saturday night’s loss was another in a series of hard-knocks lessons every inexperienced team has to endure on the road to improvement.

“We competed well tonight, especially in the second half,” Yoder said. “But we really struggled with Goshen’s pressure, and that’s disappointing since we talked about it beforehand and knew what to expect.”

The Redskins were led by Deja Felder, who poured in 28 points. Aimee Swihart added 23.

Westview got eight points from Grace Hales.

Westview was a 32-25 winner in the J.V. contest. Riley Hochstetler had 17 points to pace the Warrior jayvees. Brianna Yoder had right points to lead Goshen.

The Redskins are idle until Tuesday, Nov. 27 when they will travel to Elkhart Central. Westview opens NECC play at home against Prairie Heights Friday night.
